darioklc (551) - Karlovac, CROATIA - MAY 29, 2012
One of the most popular beer in Serbia. I’ve bought it in Monte Negro. It has nice retention head and malty taste. It’s balanced, overcarbonated and easy to drink, Nothing special.

ClubGonzo (4549) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 28, 2012
Bottle, from immigrant store @ Nørrebro, Copenhagen. According to the clerk, this is "Serbia’s best beer, like Tuborg in Denmark" so my expectations are naturally sky-high. :-P Pours a clear light golden body with a small white head. Aroma is grainy sweet malts, and not much more actually. Taste is sweet pale malts, hints of corn and some bitter hop-like tones in the finish. Meh. Pretty standard for its level, I reckon.

hawthorne00 (2728) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 23, 2012
Can. Pale orange with a white head that fades to a coat. Aroma is grainy with grass and some citrus. Thin verging on watery. Sweet and grainy with a little bitterness. A little touch of metal at the end, along with some mild herbs. Nearly a year in date, but tastes cheap and tired.

Bottle.Pale gold with a white froth head. Flavour is light lager, some grain but overall a bit bland

crossovert (8849) - Illinois, USA - MAY 16, 2012
500ml bottle. Best before 22/02/13. It pours a clear gold with a foamy white head. Pretty standard. The smell is relatively light. Light grains, light hops. A typical AAL. The flavor is sweet and slightly soapy. A decent amount of hops but mostly pale malts. Herbal medicinal hop flavor. Average. Not a German Pilsener btw.

JoeM500 (1906) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - MAY 16, 2012
nearly clear with frothy head from bottle, slight grassy nose. Nearly no taste, but lively carbonation. Something wicked on my tongue, like gasoline or other fuel. Really off-putting.

envane (568) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 6, 2012
Clear yellow with a white head. Grassy aroma. Light grainy malt with a clean, lightly bitter finish. "The finest beer from Serbia" the guy at store told he, and maybe he’s right.
